We (a couple) walked in this place by mistake thinking of some other place located on the same small street near Vaci. Anyways, we decided to stay here and to try vegetarian Indian food.
Even if it is hard to imagine Indian food without butter chicken, we were obliged to do so because all pre-cooked dishes were made with a "meat free" rule. In closer look, we didn't find any imitations of a meat made with soy, so it made a first negative impression for us.
Another disappointment was the service. No matter that the place was full of vegetarian tourists, the staff members didn't speak English. As a result, it was a bit unconfortable to explain with gestures to put veggie balls on the top of the rice. We failed in it, so rice and veggie balls were put on the separate plates as it originally supposed to be.
The taste of veggie balls, rice, fried bread and peppers, pita and mango lassi was above average but it felt that real meat or its imitation is missing. The choco cake was quite of a surprize because of its very decent taste and size.
The prices were reasonable for the food that we ordered: two main dishes + 1 desert + 2 mango lassy for ~ 9 euros.
The atmosphere of the place was nice with some Indian decorations and comfortable tables and seats.
We definately would recommend this place for vegetarians as a one time lunch option because of a few available vegetarian restaurants in Budapest. However, non-Vegetarians might be a bit disappointed with this place.
